Jaxon, a 2-year-old who lives in Louisville, Kentucky, had been playing in his toy car, when his mom, Ashley Crawford, decided to call in the cops, hailing an officer from a nearby fender-bender for a photo op.
“I thought, ‘How cute would it be if I got a picture of Jaxon pulled over?’” Crawford recalled to Yahoo. “I waited for [the officer] to finish up with his incident report and asked him if he wouldn’t mind turning the lights on and pulling Jaxon over.”
Sure enough, Jaxon dutifully pulled his red Little Tikes car over to the side of the road. Whereas any adult rues the day they’re pulled over, the toddler — despite having no license, registration or working lights — had a great time, his mom said.
Crawford told WHAS Jaxon very much enjoyed the interaction, and she has the photos to prove it. In one of the pictures, the toddler (pacifier in mouth) even gives the long arm of the law a high-five.

Two Michigan police officers went beyond the call of duty on Monday when they saw a wheelchair-bound man attempting to mow his lawn and decided to take over the task.
“The gentleman’s entire lawn was manicured to perfection,” according to post on the Downtown Kalamazoo Cops Facebook page.
Kalamazoo officer Joe Hutson saw the man during one of his patrols and decided to take over the yard work, according to the post.
Shortly after, Hutson’s partner, Officer John Khillah, showed up with a push mower, a weed trimmer and a leaf blower.
Photos of the act show the officers mowing the shaggy grass around the man’s home.
“Many citizens stopped to view the kindness and compassion these officers displayed in helping a fellow citizen,” the post read.
The random act of kindness has received a lot of attention from well-wishers across the country. The Facebook post has been shared more than 3,000 times and received more than 6,000 likes.
